The iPod is already pretty versatile from audio books to recipes and photos; you can now watch movies and television shows. And of course, you can purchase and download them through iTunes! The 80 GB iPod is capable of holding 20,000 songs, 25,000 photos and now 100 hours of video or any combination thereof. Even television shows and iPod games can also be synchronized when you plug into iTunes.
Watching television and movies will drain your battery power, but you will get six hours of watching time on your iPod. Your regular laptop computer with a DVD drive might be lucky to get through the whole movie, but chances are your battery is going to die at the end of the movie. Video iPod will allow you to watch movies and TV shows while on the go and not have to worry about your iPod dying on you. The battery power makes the iPod great for flying, car rides or just sitting around bored at the office.
The new iPod interface makes finding a song out of 20,000 or a movie out of 100 hours easy. Synchronizing your video and television is easy through iTunes and you can always have the latest episodes or the newest movies. Search by name or genre and your iPod will bring the files to you.
The USB Power Adapter is handy and gives you the flexibility of charging your iPod when you're not connected to a computer. This is great if you are in a restaurant or airport and need to plug in for a little while and get some juice for your trip.
RoadTrip makes car rides easy as well. Say you are driving for twelve hours and your iPod is only going to last half of that time while you are watching movies and television shows. Combine your iPod with the RoadTrip and you can charge, listen to FM radio and your music. Everyone will love being able to watch movies and television shows while traveling by air or ground. RoadTrip works with all docking iPods except the 1st and 2nd generations.
The iPod Video Shield is also great for your video iPod. The shield is practically invisible and it will keep your screen clean without adding bulk to your iPod. It snaps on and off easily and allows all of your connectors to remain in place. This is really helpful if you are traveling with your iPod and to keep it protected.
